Misc 1975 WWWF

Some of the big news for 1975 was the heel turn of Spiros Arion. In a match against Killer Kowalski Chief Jay Strongbow interfered on behalf of Arion. After Arion gets dis-qualified he turns on Strongbow and feuds with Strongbow & Sammartino.

Victor Rivera left the WWWF to compete in the IWA.
